My friend Shasta gave me some of Joel Dewberry's new Ginseng. It is GORGEOUS......and it is so thick and silky....drool...... I wanted to make it into something fabulous! I designed a briefcase ( in my notebook) that I thought would show off the fabric, but I didn't want to make a "test" bag-to see if the pattern works.....no no, I just dive right into the lusciousness with my rotary cutter.
So far, it is working out nicely. There have been several moments where I've gone, "Ewwww, I should have done that BEFORE I sewed it to that other part!"
I hope that I can get the handwork done (part of the oops!) so that I can show it off soon!
